Baseball Game 11/5/07
A good golf swing is very similar to a
baseball swing, especially when it comes to creating power. The key to hitting a golf ball hard, and a baseball for that matter, is proper timing. Just before the arms and club finish the backswing, the hips must begin their rotation back toward the target. This stretches the left arm across the chest and serves to drag the club down to the ball. The dragging continues right up to impact when the left leg begins to straighten and the arms and club are “snapped” out away from the body. This is the identical sequence used by any good power hitter in baseball and one you should try to copy every time you pull out the driver.
Creating power with the driver has a lot more to do with “when to” than it does with “how to.”
